    Are we talking full recovery?
    Just asking because I remember the Deer in question was very sick and weak and the expert said he would have died eventually. I’ll vote yes because you never say never

    Are we talking center punch double lung or catching the edge?

    I've seen deer get infected and die from a shoulder wound eventually. The question is blunt because most are saying a double lunged deer is dead within 100 yards of the shot.

    I'm not talking about hitting the edge. I'm talking a good double lunged hit with a hole in and out of both not a cut on the edge. I will get you some crow ready to eat after this is over. How do you like it cooked sir

    Since the general consensus here is that deer survive perfect double lung shots all the time, reckon we should just all start shooting field points and take nothing but "base of the ear" broadside shots.
    How many head shot deer have you and Ruby tracked? I assume way less than double lung Rage hits lol

    I’m starting to shoot for the ham to hit the artery.

    Just post up what you have and stop with the dramatics. It would be nice to see the circumstances and hear the story.

    I had to change my vote unfortunately to No. Can one lucky Deer win the Powerball yes but 99.999% of square double lung hit deer are dead. The question is too broad, are you specifically asking about this one particular deer that you already have the evidence it lived for a month? I’m honestly not trying to be derogatory or a butt hole because I’m not burning bridges But come on now, sometimes you get lucky. Did you ever see the picture of the doe with an arrow lodged in its skull, It was still alive walking around too

    Live for how long?
    Minutes? 100%
    Hours? 50%
    Days? <2%
    Forever? 0. Even with vitamins and hugs.

    Did all the research I could do and a true double lung would have to be a dead deer, when a lung is punctured, especially with a full pass through broad head the lungs will collapse and they can’t live without lungs
